2018-2019 Catalog

Master of Health Services Administration

The Master of Health Services Administration program is designed to meet the needs of health care professionals and others who wish to obtain the knowledge and skills needed to assume mid-level and executive level managerial positions in health services organizations.

Health services administration degrees prepare students by training them to manage and direct the business aspects of health care. Graduates of the Master of Health Services Administration program are prepared for managerial positions in a variety of health care settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, physician’s offices, pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, consulting, government and public policy, and others.

Students who have not earned degrees from appropriate fields of study may be required to take additional coursework as a prerequisite for completing the program.

Completion of Strayer University’s Master of Health Services Administration program does not guarantee a student has met the requirements to apply for licensure as a health care administrator in any state. Students pursuing professional health care certifications should contact their respective state health departments to confirm educational requirements before beginning the program.

The curriculum requirements, notes and information included on this page for the Master of Health Services Administration program offered in Maryland only apply to students enrolled through Maryland campuses (other than the Owings Mills and White Marsh campuses).
